The worst wealth creation book you should read–Think and Grow Rich

Being handed money

So you want to become an entrepreneur. Whether that means making an extra 50 bucks a month or 50k a month, it’s kind of similar.

How is it similar? Well, if you’re the type of person that can make a little without even having a job, then you’re the type with the capability to make a lot, too. Anyway, there’s this book that every entrepreneur reads. It’s a rite of passage. We all read this thing.

Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill.

Except here’s the thing–it’s not that great. I don’t think so, anyway. It’s a bajillion years old, by modern standards. I think there’s way better books now. 

My favorite books are Flow, and The Rational Optimist but even Rich Dad, Poor Dad  is better than Think and Grow Rich (though none of those books are spiritual-based like Think and Grow Rich. Hate it or not, The Secret is still a great modern book on spiritual methods of money-making).

But this book marks the very beginning of modern thinking on wealth creation. It was revolutionary at the time, though much of it just seems like common sense at this point, if you have been reading any kind of books/guides on this subject at all.

There are some amazing concepts, but I think it rambles quite a bit. I like keeping things to the point.

Regardless, you can get started reading this book if you like. You don’t have to buy it. Here’s a free full PDF of Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
